In an interesting article in the Orthomolecular Medicine News dated January 14, 2015 we learned the following:
“There were no deaths whatsoever from vitamins in the year 2013. The 31st annual report from the American Association of Poison Control Centers shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins. And, there were no deaths whatsoever from vitamin A, niacin, vitamin B-6, any other B-vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, or any vitamin at all.
“Well over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. If each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes about 170,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of well over 60 billion doses annually. Since many people take far more than just one single vitamin tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of vitamin supplements is all the more remarkable.”
When I began my search for a healthier diet and lifestyle almost 40 years ago, I thought that all nutritional needs of the body could be met by simply eating the plant foods coming from the garden and concentrating these nutrients in raw vegetable juices.
But as I learned about the serious depletion of soil nutrients, which results in a serious lack of these nutrients in the plants, I began to realize the importance of supplementation.
What was the only solution to this dilemma? SUPPLEMENTATION!
I began by supplementing my healthy plant-based diet and raw vegetable juices, with supplements and noticed a difference. This resulted in Hallelujah Acres hiring Michael Donaldson, a PhD chemical engineer, graduate of Cornell University to oversee the Hallelujah Diet.
Through the years, Dr. Donaldson has developed some of our nutritional supplements and guided us as to the proper ones to enhance the diet with and make up for any that might be lacking in the diet. Today, Hallelujah Acres carries some of the finest supplements available and makes them available to the public.
Rhonda and I daily supplement with a number of these supplements! And it is comforting to learn from the above article that the supplements we take are ABSOLUTELY SAFE!
